Former USF C Egbunu transfers to Florida

Posted: Updated:

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Former South Florida center John Egbunu has transferred to Florida.

The Gators announced Egbunu's summer enrollment Thursday, saying the 6-foot-10 center will begin attending classes June 30. He will have to sit out the 2014-15 season, after which he will have three years of eligibility remaining.

Egbunu is the second transfer to join coach Billy Donovan's team in recent months, joining former Michigan forward Jon Horford. Florida has four other transfers on its roster: former Virginia Tech forward Dorian Finny-Smith, former Rutgers guard Eli Carter, former South Carolina center Damontre Harris and Donovan's son, former Catholic University guard Billy Donovan.

Egbunu averaged 7.4 points and 6.2 rebounds as a freshman, earning a spot on the American Athletic Conference's all-rookie team.

    Bo Wallace threw four touchdowns passes in a sloppy season opener, and No. 18 Mississippi pulled away in the fourth quarter to beat Boise State 35-13 on Thursday night.
    For much of the night, it was tough to watch. Mississippi hardly looked like the 18th-ranked team in the country. Boise State in no way resembled the program that used to beat the big boys with such regularity.

    Kenny Hill broke Johnny Manziel's single-game passing record with 511 yards and No. 21 Texas A&M beat No. 9 South Carolina 52-28 on Thursday night, ending the Gamecocks' 18-game home win streak.
    Kenny Hill looked more than ready to replace Johnny Manziel on the field. He is still getting used to the attention that goes along with the job.
